Caroline Peyton

Caroline Peyton : Intuition
Bar-B-Q from 1977.

A mellow break from the spiritual power jazz of recent times. Sometimes we need to step back from the wail of the tenor, the thundering bass, the frenzied conga and the crash of the cymbal. Presented here are 3 choice tracks for the discerning set. Yes, the Peterson cut "Just as We" is there, but you need to dim the lights, take a glass of Sancerre, relax and dip a toe into the Mitchell-esque "Try to be True". The soft baleful soul of "Brister" completes the trio.

Highly recommended.
